Steven Bellovin has been doing considerable and valuable work on a method
called pushback. You can find a paper on this here:

Subject: engineering --> ddos and flooding
Hey, this is a technical question for all of the Network
Engineers/Architects on the list. Has a method been found to stop an
incoming attack? Granted you can filter the packets to null on the
but that doesn't stop them from coming across the wire and into the
router. Has a way been devised to stop them from coming into the router;
via something like a BGP update to null the packets or what? I'm
about a flood that is so massive coming from the core and flooding a small
T1 or less.
